Louisiana Safety Heading to K-State

When you play in the Big 12, you better have defensive backs that can run and play against the spread offense and you better have depth. Kansas State hosted a bevy of recruits this past weekend and the end results have been pouring in with several recruits verbally committing to play in Manhattan. Add another to the List! Read On!

One of those players is a 6-foot-3 and 3/4 and 202 lbs that hails from O.P Walker High School in New Orleans and the newest Wildcat- Torell Miller.

One thing is certain, the Wildcats have gone out secured the verbal commitments of several big-time Safety prospects and the defensive backfield will be ripe with competition. This past weekend, Coach Snyder and his staff hosted one of the biggest recruiting weekends to date and Torell Miller was one of those who decided he wanted to play his college football in Manhattan and wanted to personally tell Coach Snyder and his staff his intentions before leaving the Little Apple.

"Yes, sir I committed to Coach Snyder and his coaches before I left. It was Sunday night and I was talking with Coach Snyder and he just asked me:' Are you ready?' and that was what I was looking for. I committed to them right then," Miller told KStateFans.

Torell, who weighs in a little under 6-foot-4 and is a solid 202 pounds, says that he fits what the Wildcats are looking to do on defense and likes what he has heard about future plans.

"I was talking with Coach (Vic) Koenning and he told me they are going to run a kind of 3-4 dime defense with two safeties that they kind of put in a cover two but also are going to come up and can go over the top. They are going to stunt a lot and let us run. That is me right there. That is the kind of defense that I like to run with and then you got Coach Snyder and you know he is shooting you straight when he tells you how they are going to run things. He (Coach Snyder) has won a bunch of trophies and you know he is a legend," said Miller.

With other programs such as Louisiana Tech and Louisiana -Monroe recruiting this prospect, Miller says it was the Kansas State coaching staff that put him over the top and made the decision an easy one.

"Kansas State and their coaches, man they just show you the love. They have a great coaching staff. that really stands out to you when you go there and get the chance to talk to them. I look at how they treat their upper-classmen and you know that they are going to do you right. You know some other schools that are going to use you but not there. They are going to be real honest with you and they look after you."

Miller who holds a 3.0 overall g.p.a and a 2.9 core g.p.a says that he is ready to go in the classroom and that grades will not be an issue with him.

Although committing verbally to K-State, Torell does say there is an outside chance that he takes a visit to Troy this month on the 23rd. When asked if he was done with recruiting, Miller had this to say: "Yea Kansas State is where I want to be. To be truthful, I am still trying to make up my mind on whether or not to take that trip. Right now, LSU is trying to talk to my coach and get me to visit. And I know that Miami is looking at my film and they said they want to bring me in for a visit, would I come? I am really just trying to be honest and think about some things. Alabama has me on their board but you know how that goes. I would say I am really going to go to Kansas State but I might take that visit to Troy and all, but then again I probably am not tripping there you know. I probably am not going to take that trip."

Asked if he has anything to say to the Fans of Kansas State, Miller simply responded: "Tell them I am happy to be at KSU and I am happy to be coming there."

We will be checking back with Torell prior to the 23rd and update you on any changes to his recruitment. For all the action, stay tuned to KStateFans.com
